Light Requirements: Astrophytum ornatum prefers bright, indirect light. It can tolerate some direct sunlight, but too much can cause sunburn on its delicate skin. It is best to provide filtered or diffused light.
Watering: Astrophytum ornatum is a drought-tolerant cactus that prefers infrequent watering. Allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings, and be cautious not to overwater, as it can lead to root rot.
Temperature: Astrophytum ornatum prefers warm temperatures between 21-29°C during the growing season, and cooler temperatures between 10-15°C during the winter rest period.
Soil: Well-draining cactus or succulent soil mix is ideal for Astrophytum ornatum. It should be gritty and allow excess moisture to drain quickly.
